Joel W. Finler | Hollywood Movie Stills: Art and Technique in the Golden Age of the Studios (Titan Books)

| Print |

Written by Sarah Boslaugh Wednesday, 31 October 2012 12:49

Peter Rosch | My Dead Friend Sarah (CreateSpace)

| Print |

Written by Andrea Braun Tuesday, 31 July 2012 20:28

It is giving nothing away to say that Sarah dies, considering the title says so, but when and how it happens and “whodunit” is the business of the book.

| Print |

Written by Jenn Metzler Tuesday, 03 April 2012 10:25

caretomakeloveConsidering the seemingly stellar lineup of writers, musicians, and comics, Care to Make Love is an enormous disappointment. Louis C.K. comes across as a petulant child, but at least the editors had the foresight to warn the reader that “Mr. C.K.” was “having a bad day.”
